    I have nothing to disclose at this time.
    OMG.
    That is a total thing of beauty.

    Jeff is taking that company to another level VERY quickly.
    The finishes he is doing are completely unbelievable.

    Congrats...keeps us posted on your review.

    I didn't know they were offering the P pickups with the Icon. For some reason I thought they only offered soapbars with that.

    I play an LB, but sometimes wish I'd gone for the Icon. I like the body shape better.

    Carvin/Kiesel doesn't make the soapbars anymore. You can now get the Icon with two radiused humbuckers, two radiused single coils, an SCP in the neck, and either the humbucker or single coil in the bridge.

    Looks great, I love the painted neck look. I always turn to rock out with my drummer but after I got my Carvin LB76 everybody assumed I was doing it to show off the back of the neck.

    What did you get engraved on the truss cover? Your name? I don't need a pic, just curious. My LB76 has "The F Clef" engraved on the cover.

    I thought that the Icon had been discontinued, is it back in production again?

    It was never fully discontinued but updated. I guess it is an Icon 2.0 now.
